Answer: 
it is possible. They recommend to drain it during the winter if you leave it outside. I'm on the coast of S.C. so it's not much of a factor here.

Answer: 
Probably yes, the instructions tell you to disconnect the hose from the rain spout and drain the barrel for the winter. I have two and will probably add a third in the spring.

Where to drill a hole in the top of the urn since I have canales

Asked by

August 2, 2016
I bought four of these. I live in New Mexico and have canales with a flat roof. The installation guide does not give any instructions as to where to drill a hole in the top of the urn if the water drips from the canales to the urn itself. I do not have gutters and downspouts.

Answer: 
The mosquito would need to go down the rain spout, land in the diverter, crawl thru the hose and drop into the barrel. The larva would need to reverse that. There is no other way for them to get in and the only other way out is the drain hose.
The only place mosquito's could be a problem is the top where you can sit flower pots, if the drain hole gets clogged you could have standing water.

Answer: 
I would say yes. The interior is closed. The exterior has a planter on the top so unlike my other rain barrels, no water sits on the top. Mosquitoes only need half a tablespoon of water to lay eggs.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 169 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed in the manufacturer Within the first few weeks of installation, I noticed the back was bulging significantly. Given that it is top heavy. As well as on a stand for water pressure, I'm afraid it could fall since it pushes forward. I contacted the company for replacement under warranty. I provided all documentation they requested, and now they won't respond. Other than the weak back, it holds a great amount of water and is attractive. The diverter does have a hard time handling the flow and tends to overflow. July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for our gardening needs Very easy to set up with instructions. Works very well. August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ask me in a year about this product - After it rains! It hasn't rained since I bought this rain barrel so I can't provide a full review - ask me in a year. The barrel seems sturdy and stable enough to hold up. There should be a clear window running vertically on the side of the barrel so that one can directly observe how much water is in the barrel. We are currently in a drought and I am using the barrel to store wastewater from my reverse osmosis unit so I can use it in my garden. I had to add a longer hose to reach plantings. July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by would purchase another the water barrels arrived much earlier than I expected, all parts were included with the barrels. the directions were also understandable. Overall the quality of the product exceeded my expectation, and I expect to get many years of service from these barrels. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Won't fill The barrel was beautiful. I was excited. My handyman installed without much difficulty. When I had the first rain I noticed that water was coming out at the joints of the gutter and NOT going into the barrel. I called handyman who returned to adjust hose placement on gutter. Next rain came and same thing happened. He returned to raise the hose placement in gutter. Now the hose is going down into the barrel. We ran a garden hose and found the same thing. Very little water going down hose into barrel and lots of water coming out of joint in gutter. June 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain barrel My son-in-law installed it for me and it works great. I have two of them July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent rain barrell easy to install. lightweight, looks great as planter July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dood Product for the money Looks good and an easy install. BUT, like several other reviews, as the barrel fills with water the back bulges out pushing the barrel away from the wall. June 28, 2016
